. this was the most significant news of the weekend. the secretary of defense saying the united states of america does not have a long-range plan for dealing with iran. and the second i read that, i didn't think, oh, my gosh, the obama administration has fouled this up. i thought, oh, my gosh, the united states of america has not over the past decade between two administrations figured out how to deal with this very troublesome regime. jon meacham, five years ago, the wall street journal, five years ago, "the wall street journal" was writing blistering editorials attacking the bush administration for allowing iran, and we talked about it repeatedly, step over one line in the sand after another line in the sand. gates was talking about, of course, where they are right now, but he was talking as well, i think, about how the bush administration was unable to contain iran's nuclear ambitions. >> both those points are really important because the cold war -- the post-cold war proliferation story is like the cold war in that it doesn't pay a whole hell of a lot of attention to inauguration dates. gates serv

of the challenges we face internationally can't be solved by one nation alone, but i do think that america's leadership is important in order to get issues on the international agenda and to move in concert with other countries to have an effective response. there are a host of other issues obviously that have to be addressed. and one of the points that was made during this summit is we're talking here about the instruments of potential war or terrorism, but obviously, there are also the reasons, the rags nal, excuses for conflict that have to be addressed as well. i remain committed to being a partner with countries around the world and in particular, hot spots around the world, to see if we can reduce those tensions and resolve those conflicts. and the middle east would be a prime example. i think that the need for peace between israelis and palestinians in the arab states remains as critical as ever. it is a very hard thing to do. and i know that even if we are applying all of our political capital to that issue, the israeli people, through their government, and the palestinian people t
